The essence of the 3D printing process is to decompose the 3D model into multiple 2D planes, and then use printing equipment to process and shape them, which can achieve complex geometric structural components that cannot be achieved by traditional material reduction processes, in order to achieve significant weight reduction and increased strength. It has distinct uniqueness in the process principle. According to the Wholers Report 2023 data, the global 3D printing output value reached 18 billion US dollars in 2022, a year-on-year increase of 18%, and a compound growth rate of 24% in the past decade; According to data from the China Additive Manufacturing Industry Alliance, the output value of China's 3D printing market reached 26.5 billion yuan in 2021, a year-on-year increase of 27%, and a compound growth rate of 30% in the past three years. The size of the 3D printing market has steadily and rapidly grown.

The industrial chain is undergoing new changes, providing a foundation for further market volume expansion. After decades of development, the domestic 3D printing market has formed a full industry chain ecosystem from upstream to midstream and then downstream. The iteration of various 3D printing technologies is becoming increasingly mature and can adapt to various processing requirements. The strength performance of metal printed parts has reached the level of forgings, and the comprehensive production cost is constantly decreasing, forming strong competition for traditional CNC machining. The 3D printing industry chain has ushered in new changes in the ecosystem, technological iteration, performance advantages, cost advantages, and other aspects of the industry chain, providing a solid foundation for further market expansion.

The aerospace industry has achieved large-scale mature applications, and consumer electronics and other industries are expected to usher in a moment of qualitative change in applications. 3D printing is mainly used in aerospace, automotive manufacturing, mold manufacturing, consumer goods production, medical and other fields. The two domestic 3D printing listed companies have a considerable scale, and their revenue mainly comes from aerospace. The mature application of 3D printing in the aerospace field provides a solid foundation for the market. With the application of 3D printing production in benchmark electronic products such as Apple watches and Honor phones, 3D printing has ushered in a qualitative change in the consumer electronics field. Top domestic 3D printing companies, Platinum and Huashu High Tech, are expected to enjoy the industry's high growth dividend.
